president obama vows to take action against guns and a culture of violence and faces some tough questions from one of our own. >> this is not the first issue, the first incident of horrific gun violence of your four years. where have you been? >>> from the global resources of abc news, with cynthia mcfadden and bill weir in new york city, and terry moran in washington, this is a special edition of "nightline" -- tragedy at sandy hook, the search for solutions. >>> good evening. i'm terry moran. today the shattered community of newtown, connecticut, mourned the young teacher who died trying to protect her first grade class, while school districts across the country are now beefing up security. in the wake of this tragedy, schools nationwide are grappling with the difficult questions about keeping their students safe, including the debate over arming teachers with guns. here's alex perez. >> reporter: she came face to face with unthinkable horror and fought to save her first graders. laid to rest today, 27-year-old sandy hook teacher vicki soto. those remembers her we're green rib
were held for some of the adult victims who died trying to save their students. >> whenever actions led -- i am sure they are the ones responsible. >> sandy hook elementary is still closed. furniture and equipment has been moved to a nearby facility in monroe. --did before the attacka law enforcement says they have found no items that could shed light on the horrific attack. authorities say lanza his mother at their home and took her car and some of her guns to the school, where he broke in and opened fire. after all the carnage, he shot himself. from the unconscionable act, the nation's conscience has awakened with regard to how violence and mental health problems can impact person. the national rifle association broke its silence -- the nra says its members are shocked and saddened and heartbroken by the murders in newtown and they are "prepared to offer meaningful contributions to make sure this never happens again." no one knows exactly what this means, but the organization has scheduled a news conference for friday. the white house says president obama would actively support dianne
state, that we need action, and people say, well, it has to be comprehensive, and, sure, it has to be comprehensive, but there are certain things we can do right away. we could get rid of assault rifles. we can get rid of magazines that have more than ten bullets in them. had this guy been limited to a magazine clip that had ten bullets, nearly half those children would survive. it would wouldn't limb nature on incidents like this, but we can cut down on the carnage significantly. we can also close the gun show loophole. you know, it's shocking, alex, that 40% of the guns purchased in america are purchased without the buyer being subject to a background check. even nra members, 74% of nra members and 89% of all gun owners want background checks before anybody can get a gun, so the men and women in congress have to stiffen their backs, not be afraid of the organization the nra, because the members of the nra are better than the organization, and it's time for us to act finally once and for all. >> howard, your boss, mayor michael bloomberg, has been leading the charge on gun cont
to announce the actions it plans to take in the wake of the elementary school tragedy. the national rifle association breaking that silence for the first time yesterday saying it was prepared to make meaningful contributions to make sure this never happens again. the gun rights organization and gun rights advocates in congress both under public pressure to join the call for action. >> just wonder -- this long after a mass killing like that, little 6 and 7-year-olds, there is not a single republican in america, in elected office, not going to step up and say something? >> i think that says something in itself. >> i think it is time to talk, guys. one way or the other, where do you stand on this issue? >> joining me this morning is connecticut congressman joe courtney. good to have you here. the president is speaking in 45 minutes from now to announce this new interagency task force on gun control. he's not expected to announce any new specific gun regulation policy proposals, however, does this suggest to you that some serious policy is coming and coming soon? >> it does. the difference in
a year ago and the decisions and the military action that resulted in the death of osama bin laden. >> good evening. tonight i can report to the american people and to the world that the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden, the leader of al qaeda. >> usa, usa! usa! >> the news came out of nowhere. no one in this country was expecting it, just as no one inside the bin laden compound was expecting u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s to arrive by helicopter. one image from that night has come to symbolize the mission. the photograph taken at the height of the raid by veteran white house photographer pete souza. there it is. there you are. >> here i am sitting right here. >> that's an intense look on your face, and everyone is intently watching that screen. >> this is -- if i'm not mistaken, pete, this picture was taken right as atthe helicopter was having problems. that's what it feels like, because i remember hillary putting his hand over her mouth at that point. >> when you look at it, what does it conjure up inside you? >> that's the way i usual look when my husban
and i agree with that. i have five children myself, but i also want to be able to take action so that this won't happen. three of my children are going to be going to elementary school on monday so we need to take some action and as a police officer, i can tell you what needs to be done is these gun-free school zones, that needs to be repealed. we have to have protection there and we have to have the ability for teachers and you know, people on the campuses to be able to defend themselves and to protect these young children. >> rick: so what you're talking about having someone armed and trained inside every school around the country in the event of something like this happening. >> i'm not talking about necessarily hiring or having a police state, but talking about allowing teachers and, you know, other personnel that work at the school to have the ability to have a weapon. if that principal, and i know it's a very tragic incident, but if that principal had a weapon. there have been a chance to save her own life, but we need to take this notion of, you know, not taking action now
tes tantntestant the reality when you look at the republican actions in particular, and the republican actions are polling 20% approval and the president is polling 50% approval, but the 20% approval is about the action on the cliff and not how they play in their individual districts. so when you travel around the country, and i have been to e tea party country in arizona, et cetera, there is a huge incentive for some of the more junior members of congress to stand their ground. it doesn't have to do with the fiscal math of the country, but it has to do with the electoral math of the home districts. >> and i think that she has put the finger on the thing that we are missing when we taub abolk this, because we act as if congress governs at a body with national interests and held accountable to national constituencies, but no, if it is game theory, each one of them is facing a different payoff structure in their own home constituen constituency. >> and it is skewed. first of all the tea party a minority, but the way that the republicans control the state governmentships and the state leg
to that on party principal. you have seen republican groups like heritage action and club for growth recommend a no vote on plan b. it's a big question whether john boehner has 218 votes to get the back up plan passed through the house. >> the plan b for people who are not familiar would raise taxes on incomes above $1 million, but does nothing to deal with the across the board spending cuts known as the sequester which we talked so much about, entitlement spending and provisions that the president brought up today. he pointed out laj cally the plan makes no sense when you look at what the republicans said they want to do, particularly attack spending cuts and spending in the country and does not address that. >> the timing is also very important too. this plan b that house speaker john boehner is proposing came after president obama made his biggest concessions in the cliskal cliff debate. as well as actually proposing adjustments to the cost of living adjustments to social security. both of which liberals were not happy about, but they were concessions none the less. then the republicans go

. wilson's contract will be extended until june 2014. at this point, the action of not renewing his action still stands as of december 4th. >> it is hard for me to love any entity more than i love morgan state university. >> that was morgan state president dr. david wilson in mid december at eight campus rally days after learning the board of regents would be letting his contract expired in june 2013. the vote was tied, 8-7. -- the vote was tight. they are now reconvening to hear from the public to make sure they made the right decision. toi think it's a bad idea fire the president's in the middle of a school year. it's one of those things where people are really telling us what has happened. >> alumni, state, and others packed the courtroom and cameras were not allowed to witness the testimony. they say more needed to be done. >> we need to expand more in university and i have liked and now president of many other institutions or any other educator at any level. it is more conducive working hand in hand with communities and that is where i stand in coming here today. >> congressmen elijah

"newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for being with me. christians around the world are getting ready to celebrate christmas, which marks the birth of their lord and savior jesus christ. here's a live look at bethlehem, where people are beginning to gather for the midnight mass at the church of the holy nativity. bethlehem is described in the bible as the birth place of jesus. about 2 million people make the pilgrimage to bethlehem each and every year. pope benedict expected to deliver his christmas mass in just a few hours at st. peter's basilica in rome. he has a book out debunking several myths about now the nativity unfolded. for one thing, he says the accepted date of jesus' birth is several yea

next guest says that is wh they should have voted against it. american majority action spokesman, i just saw your tweet. you're talking about, what was it, $200 million for alaskan fisheries. you said, why alaska? >> i don't know. alaska is the only state in he union where you et a plate -- paid to live. they all have to pay taxes. they can afford fishery project. the bigger project is, why was this in the emergency bill for hurricanes in the? doesn't make any sense. 9 billion will be spent in 2013. 85 percent doesn't come until 2014 and beyond. that's not immediately. what this bill is fundamentally is a poor bill. what the senate could have done is passed the clean $9 billion loan through -- through the states. here is your relief and pass that. instead to my they came back to washington to get their fix. the port that is in this bill, and it is ridiculous tom: like you said, trying to cram all this in before the end of the year. is -- every piece of proponent writing about this has said this is critical. you do it before the end of te year because these victims are sitting there,

majority action and jared bernstein a senior fellow and an msnbc contributor. welcome to you both. jared, this plan b, it's not only an affront to what the president has been trying to do in terms of a balanced approach. it's also a colossal waste of time, isn't it? >> absolutely. i mean, i have been writing about this in terms of theatrics at a time when really nobody ought to be going to the theater. the fiscal cliff is way too close for this type of game playing and i just noted today that the gdp report for the third quarter got a little bit of a bump. it was marked up to 3.1%. we're actually making some progress on this economic recovery, but if we go over and stay over the cliff because of all this screwing around, forget about it. you're going to have that recovery go south very quickly. john boehner on monday looked like a guy who is willing to make a balanced compromise or at least consider one in the interest of the country. john boehner on wednesday looks like a guy who is looking out for his own skin over the benefit of the american people. >> ron, what's your view of the spe
as possible, moving down that path is the right course of action for us. >> what boehner is proposing is extending bush tax cuts for everybody that makes less than $1 million a year. they say that will take the threat of tax increases off the table for most americans. but the white house and democrats up here on capitol hill have already rejected that option, guys. we're sort of at a little stalemate for this hour, maybe the next. >> there is some talking going on evidently. let's take you deeper inside the new proposals on the table, show you the differences. our senior economics reporter steve liesman has the fiscal clifferences. >> we're only going to do revenue. we're not going to do spending. come back tomorrow and hopefully get more spending. let's just do revenue. it's enough. >> clifferences. >> the first thing here, let's look at tax increases. what we understand with the new proposal of obama to raise tacks on those making $400,000 and higher, that would raise $600 billion in revenue. we believe the revenue side from the gop is $460 billion. just a warning on the gop. not ge
